That sounds pretty nice!

What kind of approach are you taking to this problem?  One thing you
could do is to start from the MCS compiler, and instead of ignoring
the comments, keep track of the comments, so you can use the same C#
parser (which is for all practical purposes complete: it parses
itself) and use that to generate acurate documentaiton.
